(1) In Mississippi, the Republicans won two Blue Dog seats in the 2010 midterm elections. Both seats are now “Solid Republican.”
(2) In Alabama, the Republicans won two Blue Dog seats. They also picked up a seat from a party switch in North Alabama. They also won Bobby Bright’s seat in Southeast Alabama. Both seats are now “Solid Republican.”
(3) In Tennessee, the Republicans won three seats in the 2010 midterms. All three seats are “Solid Republican.”
(4) In Georgia, Republicans won a Blue Dog seat in Central Georgia, and the Republican challenger narrowly lost to John Barrow. The only thing that has changed is Barrow’s seat is a tossup. Republicans have consolidated their gains.
(5) In Arkansas, the Republicans picked up two House seats in the 2010 midterm elections. They are projected to hold both seats and have a solid lock on Arkansas’s 4th District which is now held by a Democrats.
(6) In Louisiana, Republicans picked up one House seat in the 2010 midterm elections. I believe Louisiana lost a House seat in redistricting, but the Republicans will still control all but one of Louisiana’s House seats.
(7) In Oklahoma, Republicans didn’t win any House seats in the 2010 midterm elections, but they now have a solid lock on Oklahoma’s Second District which is now occupied by a Democrat.
(8) In Texas, there has been some significant redistricting, but Republicans won Chet Edwards’ Blue Dog seat in the 2010 midterm elections and they are going to hold that seat in 2011. They are going to lose a Brown Hole seat in South Texas.
(9) In Missouri, Republicans won Ike Skelton’s seat in the 2010 midterms and they have a solid lock on that seat in 2012.
(10) In Kentucky, the Republicans didn’t win any House seats in 2010, but Ben Chandler’s seat based on Lexington is competitive and leans Democrats.
(11) In West Virginia, Republicans won West Virginia’s First District in the 2010 midterm elections. They have a solid lock on that seat. The Democrat held seat in southern West Virginia is “lean Democrat.”
(12) In Florida, there is also been a lot of redistricting, but Republicans picked up four House seats in Florida in the 2010 midterms. There are two toss up races in South Florida. There is also a “lean Democrat” district in the Orlando area. It looks like Republicans will hang on to the Tallahassee district in North Florida.
(13) In South Carolina, Republicans won John Spratt’s seat in the 2010 midterm elections. They are going to hang on to that seat and pickup the new South Carolina House seat due to redistricting.
(14) In North Carolina, Republicans won North Carolina’s Second District in the 2010 midterms, but the Democrats eeked out some close victories last time. Of the seven Democrat House seats in North Carolina, 3 are Solid Democrat, 1 is a toss up, 1 is “lean Democrat,” and 2 are “lean Republican” including Heath Shuler’s district in Asheville.
(15) In Virginia, Republicans won three seats from the Democrats in the 2010 midterm elections. In 2012, they have a solid lock on all three pickup seats.
(16) In Maryland, Republicans won Frank Kratovil’s seat in the 2010 midterm elections. In 2012, they will hold that Eastern Shore seat, but they will probably lose Roscoe Bartlett’s seat in Western Maryland.
